I found a fox
Caught by dogs
He let me take him in my hands
His little heart
It beats so fast
And I'm ashamed of running away
From nothing real
I just can't deal with this
But I'm still afraid to be there
Among your hounds of love
And feel your arms surround me
I've always been a coward
And never know what's good for me
It's all Kate Bush and covers over here! This past weekend Kerri and I got to talking about (and listening to) covers since she posted another Kate Bush track that also has a terrific cover song Friday. Placebo's version of "Running Up That Hill" is ace. In addition to being a terrific and original act, Placebo are pretty adept when it comes to covers. Through the course of that afternoon, we landed on the idea of doing a covers week, and here's our first song, from a band I've been longing to share on TMIS. It's probably not a coincidence that the song comes from Kate Bush and her landmark album.
Sunderland's Futureheads, who, back in 2004, released this amazing rendition of Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love". The rest of that debut album is classic indie dance/rock gold as well.
